Black lodge and a walnut tree in Gorski kotar, Croatia by Tomislav Soldo, PRO-S

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: Tomislav Soldo, PRO-S

The genesis of this house might have a somewhat peculiar narrative. The possibly reversed but certainly not unwanted process of conceiving and designing the space where the foremost sensory role has the nature itself.

Initially, before everything else, there was a walnut tree, providing perfect natural shade and representing the first outdoor residing space. Over time, a terrace was gradually shaped around the tree, and eventually the idea of building the house emerged.

NYE SKÅPET MOUNTAIN LODGES in Soddatjørn, Norway by KOKO architects

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Article source: KOKO architects

Stavanger Turistforening (STF) or the Stavanger Tourism Association has 23,000 members and provides active, versatile and environmentally friendly activities in the wilderness for young and old, families, amateur hikers and mountaineering enthusiasts.
STF has 35 self-catering mountain lodges in the area. Visitors are usually members of Norway’s trekking associations. The system is built on trust: each person leaves money for the accommodation in a box inside the lodge or fills in an invoice form with their personal information. Since the lodges are mostly a long way from roads and traffic and difficult to get to, it is also the task of the visitors to take care of the visitors coming after them: everyone replenishes the food supply, brings firewood and cleans the lodge before they leave.

THE COCONUT LODGE in Hong Kong, China by OVA Studio Ltd

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: OVA Studio Ltd

Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.
